Who doesn’t love superheroes? spider-man, superman, avengers, and the list continues…
Why do we call them superheroes?
Because they have super powers, they fight crime, they help people who are in trouble, and ultimately they save the world from evil!!! We love them and imitate them, knowing very well that they are just imaginary characters and NOT REAL!!!
But, What if…. there is a REAL superhero with REAL superpowers who fights the REAL evil and delivers people from trouble? Shouldn’t we be looking out for such a superhero to follow?

Turned water to wine
Jesus and his friends went for a wedding. There was a problem at the wedding – the host did not have enough wine and they would be humiliated, if guests finds the wine ran out… When asked by his mother, Jesus stepped in, even though it was not his concern. He asked the servants to fill water in the jars and give it to people!!! Boom… water turned to wine and the master of ceremony said, it was the best one he had!!
It normally takes many months to make a good wine, but how did Jesus turn water into wine in an instant?

Fed 5000 people with just 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes
Thousands of people crowded to see Jesus wherever he went.. One such day, Jesus wanted to arrange food for the crowd. But there were only 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes with them. It definitely was not enough to feed all the 5000 people who gathered!!! But Jesus gave thanks, broke the bread and fed all the people as much as they needed, with just 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes. Even there were 12 baskets of leftovers!! How did Jesus do this?
Clue:3 – Matthew 14 : 25-27
Walked on water
Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
